AMENDED NOTICE OF HEARING
(To change hearing date.)
CITY OF ASHERTON
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-0425
TCEQ Docket No. 2014-0898-MWD
Permit No. WQ0013746001

APPLICATION.
City of Asherton, P.O. Box 450, Asherton, Texas 78827, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0013746001 to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from a daily average flow not to exceed 180,000 gallons per day to a daily average flow not to exceed 200,000 gallons per day.

The facility is located at 504 End Street, Asherton in Dimmit County, Texas 78827. The treated effluent is discharged to an unnamed tributary; thence to El Moro Creek; thence to Soldier Slough; thence to Nueces River Above Holland Dam in Segment No. 2105 of the Nueces River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed tributary and El Moro Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 2105 are high aquatic life use, public water supply and primary contact recreation. In accordance with Title 30 of the Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC) section 307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (January 2003) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier 1 antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. This review has preliminarily determined that no water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses are present within the stream reach assessed; therefore, no Tier 2 degradation determination is required. No significant degradation of water quality is expected in water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses downstream, and existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit, which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director's preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the City of Asherton City Hall, 7935 State Highway 83, Asherton, Texas. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and not part of the application or notice. For the exact location, refer to the application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=28.459166&lng=-99.752777&zoom=13&type=r

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a formal contested case hearing at:

10:00 a.m. – January 7, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The contested case hearing will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. The hearing will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on September 19, 2014. In addition to these issues, the judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met.

The hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 26, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155. The hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests have been withdrawn or denied.

To request party status, you must attend the hearing and show that you would be adversely affected by the application in a way uncommon to members of the general public. Any person may attend the hearing and request party status. Only persons named as parties may participate at the hearing.

PERMIT NO. WQ0003511000

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION.
Dos Republicas Coal Partnership, 5150 North Loop 1604 West, San Antonio, Texas 78249, which operates the Eagle Pass Mine, a sub-bituminous coal mine, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment with renewal to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0003511000 to add active mining acreage; add Outfalls 014M-020M to discharge stormwater and mine seepage from active mining areas; add Outfalls 001R, 003R, 004R, 006R-008R, and 014R-020R to discharge stormwater from post-mining areas; remove Outfalls 002, 005, and 009-013; allow for water in all ponds to be used for dust suppression; add Outfall 021 to discharge stormwater runoff from fueling areas, fuel storage areas, vehicle and equipment maintenance areas, truck washing stations, and coal handling and storage areas; and add Outfall 022M to discharge mine pit water from active mining areas and stormwater from inside the rail loop. The existing permit authorizes the discharge of mine seepage from active mining areas and stormwater at an intermittent and variable flow via Outfalls 001-013. The TCEQ received this application on September 5, 2013.

The facility is located on the northeast side of State Highway 1588, three miles northeast of the intersection of State Highway 1588 and U.S. Highway 277, and approximately five miles northeast of the City of Eagle Pass in Maverick County, Texas 77852. The effluent will be discharged via Outfalls 001M/R, 004M/R, 007M/R, 008M/R, 017M/R, 018M/R, 021, and 022M to unnamed tributaries, thence to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin; via Outfalls 003M/R, 006M/R, 014M/R, and 019M/R to unnamed ditches, thence to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin; via Outfalls 015M/R to an unnamed ditch, thence to an unnamed tributary, thence to Hediondo Creek, thence to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin; and via Outfalls 016M/R and 020M/R to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin. The designated uses for Segment No. 2304 are high aquatic life use, primary contact recreation, and public water supply.

In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code §307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (June 2010) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier 1 antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in Elm Creek, which has been identified as having high aquatic life use. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the Maverick County Courthouse, 500 Quarry Street, Suite 2, Eagle Pass, Texas.
